SHEEP & GOATS FACT FILE
Microbiome Support for Sheep and Goats
MBS may have the following benefits for the rumen in sheep and goats:
- optimally regulating the microbial environment -increasing protease and amylase production
- increasing degradation of dietary protein and carbohydrates
- decreasing protozoal populations
- modifying rumen fermentation especially enhancing VFA (volatile fatty acids) concentrations
- enhancing growth and viability of Lactobacilli
- promoting rumen development in lambs and kids
MBS may have benefits for sheep and goats with:
- improving weight gain from an unchanged dry matter intake
- better feed conversion. carcass composition and meat quality traits
- increasing nitrogen retention
- enhancing gastrointestinal immunity
- enhancing urinary tract immunity
- enhancing respiratory tract immunity
- increasing growth performance of lambs and kids
MBS may be beneficial in the following areas for dairy goats
- increasing milk yield
- increasing butter fat percentage and protein
- decreasing mastitis
All of the above benefits may contribute to an overall increase in production levels for all aspects of the sheep and goat livestock industries.

Officially classified as generally regarded as safe (GRAS). MBS is classed as an E.N.D. product (an excluded nutritional and digestive product). MBS is produced in a GMP and APVMA registered facility. It contains no restricted animal material. This product contains no ionophores. A documented history of safe use in food. No Meat and Milk Withdrawal Times For MBS.
Environmental Safety of MBS
Reducing the nitrates and nitric oxide released into the surrounds (soil, air and water). Decreasing pathogens present in the manure that may be spread to other animals on your farm.
Reducing the stress levels may contribute to better animal welfare in sheep and goats and improve overall production in the herd.
